Reason's Greetings And HumanLight

From HumanLight:

During the winter holiday season, where the word "holiday" has taken on a more secular meaning, many events are observed. This tradition of celebrations, however, is grounded in supernatural religious beliefs that many people in modern society cannot accept. HumanLight presents an alternative reason to celebrate: a Humanist's vision of a good future. It is a future in which all people can identify with each other, behave with the highest moral standards, and work together toward a happy, just and peaceful world.

Bill O’Reilly probably hates all of this.

From The Real War on Christmas by Paul O’Donnell:
Time cites Fox News host Bill O'Reilly for his annual segments, starting in 2002, on the siege against Christmas. O'Reilly once called the unmerry greeting "Happy Holidays" the first step on the slippery slope toward ""legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage." And Americans have backed O'Reilly up. By 2006, the piece says, 68 percent of Americans "agreed that the holiday was under assault."
If "Happy Holidays" sets O'Reilly off into insane land, I wonder what "Reason's Greetings" would do to him? Maybe it would make him explode.

What’s so funny about reason, compassion, and hope?
